A Layout + A Card

Tri-Fold Card

Just a quick post this morning to share some of what I've gotten done for the challenges over at Scrapbook Circle this weekend. The above card is for Jennie's "You've Got Mail" challenge (it's a Chick Flick Crop, so all the challenges are based on a favorite movie of the design team member that's hosting the challenge). The card was to be a tri-fold card and the above is what I came up with.

Sketch

Marcee's challenge is a sketch challenge that we were to use the sketch pictured above on and a photo that was somewhat beach related for the movie "Beaches." The layout below is what I ended up with and I love how it turned out! The photo is of a special place that has been in my husband's family for some time now and that many of his relations come to and gather to spend time with family and to connect with nature and the outdoors. It's been so special to have a place like this for us to bring Zoey and to spend time together as a family.

At the Lake

I didn't have the exact color of buttons that I wanted to use for this layout so I simply cut patterned papers to be the size of the clear buttons that I had using my craft knife, using my paper piercer I then poked two holes and tied some twine through the paper and the clear buttons and had some new, perfectly matching buttons for my project!

And just so you know, there is still time to join in on the fun this weekend over at Scrapbook Circle! Just join in the thread here and start creating!
